Newcastle-based healthcare marketing company Onyx Health has expanded its team with six new additions across multiple levels of the agency.

The appointments follow a banner year for the company, which saw it increase its commission income and more than double its workforce to just under 30.

New entrants include two new senior appointments of Alison Davies as Associate Director and Sarah Walton as Account Director.

Davies previously worked as Associate Director of Science Communications for Weber Shandwick and BSMG Worldwide. She has expertise in medical communication and sits on various international advisory boards for health care issues.

Walton joins the Onyx Health team from London-based Dawson Walker Communications where she worked for over 20 years, becoming Director of Public Relations and Events.

The company has also bolstered its design team with the appointment of Daniel Watts as Senior Design Manager and Lynsey Carr as Lead Designer.

Junior nominations include Erica Wilhelmina as a Graduate Designer and Vanessa Neo as an Account Executive.

Onyx Health Chief Executive Officer Karen Winterhalter said, “At Onyx Health, we continued to grow our portfolio of international clients in 2022. We expanded our creative and communications teams to reflect our global focus as a ‘agency. As a result of the pandemic, many communication activities have moved online and developing digital content that stands out in a crowded marketplace is essential for our customers.”
